About me

I am actively looking for industrial research positions. Please contact me if you have openings.

I am a final year PhD student in the Mechanical Engineering department at Virginia Tech. My advisor is Prof. Dylan Losey, and I spend most of my time working in Collab.

Prior to joining Virginia Tech, I was employed as a Robotics Engineer at Parker Hannifin Corporation, and before that I received my MS in Robotics Engineering from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), MA.

My current research is in the areas of Robot Learning and Human Robot Interaction.
